"God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him."

When I miscarried Mary Frances on November 12, 2003, Brendan had a very difficult time. He cried a lot and asked his dad and me questions that we found difficult to answer. Today, our little boy was reading "A Story about the Angels" in These are Our Neighbors to me. He read, "Some day our angel will take us back to God. If we love and obey God, we will go to heaven." All of a sudden, he stopped reading and said, "Oh, that's why God let Mary Frances die! She loved Him and He loved her so He wanted her to live with Him. We need to love and obey God because we will die one day. And then our angel will take us to live with Him in heaven, too."


  1. Christine, that is so beautiful! What a sweeet little boy.

    When the scan showed our 9 week old baby had died my husband Andrew burst into tears! We named her Frances...sad times....

  3. How very very sweet. It gives me hope that my kids will understand some day, too.
